Raphael is a one-year-old boy from Tanzania. He is the second child in a family of two children, and is an active and jovial boy. In April 2020, Raphael was involved in a fire accident. He had learnt how to crawl, and his mother had left him in the hut playing. While she prepared lunch for her children, Raphael crawled out of the hut and approached the charcoal stove where she was, trying to hold the stove so that he could support himself and stand. He burned himself on his left hand and now cannot hold anything. Some of his fingers have been deformed by burn scar contractures, which tightened the joints on his left fingers. Initially, Raphael's wounds were treated at home using traditional medication. They have since healed, though he cannot straighten his fingers on his right hand to hold things. Raphael's parents decided to seek treatment for him and brought him to ALMC Hospital. Raphael now needs to have his fingers released to help him hold things easily. Unfortunately, this procedure is costly for Raphael and his family. His parents are farmers who grow maize and beans to make ends meet. They often sell the surplus to generate income, but it is not enough to fund the planned surgery. Raphael and his family appeal for financial support. Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is helping Raphael receive treatment. On December 11th, surgeons at their care center will perform a burn contracture release surgery so that he will be able to utilize his fingers easily. Now, Raphael needs help to fund this $874 procedure. Raphael’s mother shared, “It won’t be good for our son to grow up not being able to use his left hand. We would like him to be treated but we cannot afford his treatment cost. Please help our son.”

Ayebazibwe is a businesswoman from Uganda. She has a diploma in records and information management and continues to seek a profession utilizing these skills. She enjoys listening to gospel music and caring for her family during her free time. Ayebazibwe has two children ages 6 and 3, and her firstborn child is in primary school class two. She is currently expecting her third child. Ayebazibwe's doctors recommend that she deliver via a caesarean section because she has two previous scars from delivering both of her children via caesarean section. This way, doctors can ensure the safety of both mother and child during the procedure. Unfortunately, this procedure is costly for Ayebazibwe and her family. Currently, she sells second-hand clothes for children in Kabale Market. However, her stock is still small and gets very little income from her business. Her husband runs a small retail shop that enables him to earn a living for his family. Ayebazibwe and her husband own a three-room semi-permanent house for shelter, and plan to rent out a few permanent rooms to enable them to get extra income for their family. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is helping Ayebazibwe undergo a C-Section on November 12. This procedure will cost $207, and Ayebazibwe appeals for your support so she can have a safe delivery of her child. Ayebazibwe shared, “I hope and pray for a successful surgery. Once recovered, I will resume my usual business and plan to continue searching for a job of my profession to be able to support my husband in developing our family.”

Bikorwomuhangi is a mother from Uganda. She has one child and is going through her second pregnancy. Currently, her firstborn is three years old and is in preschool. On November 12th, she came to Rushoroza Hospital after feeling a bit of pain while at home. After assessing her, the doctor recommended she undergo a C-section surgery due to her previous C-section and because she has some degree of cephalic pelvic disproportion. If she does not deliver via C-section, Bikorwomuhangi's uterus could rupture, and both she and her unborn child could be at serious risk. Unfortunately this procedure is costly for Bikorwomuhangi and her family. Bikorwomuhangi has a certificate in primary teaching, but left her profession due to a lack of jobs. She initially started practicing her profession in a low-resource school that failed to pay her salary for the entire length of time she worked for them, which was discouraging. Now, she is a small-scale farmer with her husband, who also used to be a secondary school teacher but changed careers for his mental health. They earn very little to support their family at the moment and cannot afford the cost of her needed procedure. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $252 to fund Bikorwomuhangi's C-section surgery. This will ensure that the baby is delivered safely and in good health. Bikorwomuhangi shared, “I hope and pray for a successful surgery. I will resume farming as soon as possible to be able to sustain my family.”

Joseph is a ten-year-old boy from Kenya. He comes from a family of three kids and was raised by a single mother, who separated from his father when he was seven years old. When Joseph is older, he aspires to be a doctor who will make a positive change in the medical field. Joseph is a young, cheerful kid, and has an identical twin brother. However, unlike his brother, his life has been characterized by some unfortunate circumstances. In 2019, he lost his arm in an accident at a tea plantation where his mother works and underwent a traumatic right above elbow amputation. Additionally, Joseph was recently diagnosed with cryptorchidism, a condition in which one or both of the testicles remains undescended. If left untreated, Joseph has an increased risk of developing hernias, testicular cancer, and fertility problems in the future. He had not visited a hospital or sought consultation for this condition until now. A few weeks after he and his brother were born, his mother noticed that his testicles looked different than his brother's, but this did not cause her concern because her children were still young and had yet to grow much. When they visited our medical partner's care center, Kijabe Hospital, in October, the doctors recommended that Joseph undergo an orchidopexy surgery to rectify the condition and prevent further adverse effects such as hernias and infertility. However, this procedure is costly for Joseph's family. His mother works as a casual laborer at a tea farm in their home town in Kagwe. She is the sole breadwinner for the family and her total income is not nearly enough to cover the cost of the surgery. They do not have medical insurance coverage, and live in a small single room house at the tea plantation given to them by the farm owner. Joseph and his family are appealing for financial help. Joseph will be receiving assistance from our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation (AMHF). Fortunately, he is scheduled to undergo corrective surgery on November 4th. AMHF is requesting $561 to cover the total cost of his procedure and care. Joseph’s mother shared, “Twins tend to compare everything to each other. Joseph feels different now that he also lost his arm. He needs this surgery to at least make him feel normal like his brother.”
